“These numbers tell us as a group to keep on doing what we are doing!” said Haase. “The emails, Facebook posts and Twitter feed surrounding this release have been an encouragement; and we appreciate the support of this release from our fans and loved ones.”  
The LIVE CD and DVD, recorded at the Carson Center in Paducah, Ky., has been airing on national tv networks including RFD, DISH TV, DIRECTV, TBN, Family Net, FFE, RURAL TV, TNN, Airtime, CTN, The Walk TV (formerly Legacy), TCT and TLN and also in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, Grace TV and the Miracle Channel.

Group members Ernie Haase, Doug Anderson, Devin McGlamery and Paul Harkey gave their “signature” renditions of Gospel standards such as “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” “Heavenly Parade,” “Up Above My Head (I Hear Music in the Air),” “Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord” and “Scars in the Hands of Jesus” as well as a new, crowd-stirring arrangement of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
In addition to popular favorites, the group recorded several brand new songs on the release and were joined throughout the evening by special guests including the trio Beyond the Ashes, Gaither HOMECOMING favorite Wesley Pritchard and Broadway sensation J.Mark McVey (Les Miserables) who joined the quartet for a chilling rendition of The Sound of Music standard “Climb Every Mountain.”

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Release All-new CD and DVD, Oh What a Savior

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 4, 2014 – 10:29 am -

EHSSFebruary 4th, 2014—NASHVILLE, Tenn.–Award-winning and GRAMMY® –nominated quartet Ernie Haase & Signature Sound are releasing an all-new CD and DVD today.  Oh What a Savior, a LIVE project recorded at the Carson Center in Paducah, Ky., was produced by GMA DOVE Award-winning producer and songwriter Wayne Haun.
The group, which features Ernie Haase, Doug Anderson, Devin McGlamery and Paul Harkey, brought their hallmark energy to the stage to perform Gospel standards such as “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” “Heavenly Parade,” “Up Above My Head (I Hear Music in the Air),” “Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord” and “Scars in the Hands of Jesus” as well as a new, crowd-stirring arrangement of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
“We sang ‘This Ol’ House’ while in Chennai, India, a couple of years ago; and we included a bridge of ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’ as part of that arrangement,” recalls Haase.  “When we began to sing the bridge the crowd exploded.  We decided right then we needed to do our own arrangement of this Gospel standard.”
One of the group’s most requested Gospel standards ongoing is Haase’s now signature rendition of the title cut, “Oh What a Savior.”
“I never tire of singing this song,” Haase describes.  “To have a song people demand you sing is a career maker to say the least. However, to have audiences sing along with you and take the song away from you takes things to another level. Dare I say a ‘heavenly level.’  That’s worship!”  
In addition to popular favorites, the group recorded several brand new songs on the release including the intimate “Shh, Be Still,” sung around the piano; the first radio single “That’s Why (I Love Him So)”; and “Sometimes I Wonder.”  The group was joined throughout the evening by special guests including the trio Beyond the Ashes, Gaither HOMECOMING favorite Wesley Pritchard and Broadway sensation J.Mark McVey (Les Miserables) who joined the quartet for a chilling rendition of The Sound of Music standard “Climb Every Mountain.”
 “We hope listeners and viewers of the new release will experience joy, hope and encouragement,” stated Haase.  “These are tough times that we are living in, and I believe God placed Signature Sound here for a time such as this to be a bright light.”
Oh What a Savior has been airing on national tv networks includingRFD, DISH TV, DIRECTV, TBN, Family Net, FFE, RURAL TV, TNN, Airtime, CTN, The Walk TV (formerly Legacy), TCT and TLN and also in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, Grace TV and the Miracle Channel. The DVD is also featured on Gaither TV (available on Roku, Google TV and the Internet).
The group will be featured on the next two broadcasts of “Daniel Britt & Friends,” a Gospel radio show on SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio’s enLighten channel (Sirius XM Channel 65).  The guys share stories from the road, describe the making of the Oh What a Savior recording and preview songs from the new release.  The one-hour shows will air as follows:  Monday, February 3rd, at 7PM EST; Thursday, February 6th at 10PM EST; and Saturday, February 8th, at 12PM/NOON EST.
The new CD and DVD, available on February 4th, are exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and are available throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and G aither.com.

Gospel Songstress Lynda Randle to Release All-new Recording

Written by SGN Scoops on June 19, 2012 – 4:02 pm -

 
Emotional Release Marks Randle’s Debut Recording with
Co-Producer Ben Isaacs 
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—June 19, 2012–Gospel recording artist Lynda Randle has just recorded an all-new collection of songs entitled ‘Til the Storm Passes By, scheduled to hit the streets on July 31st.  Randle teamed up for the first time with co-producer Ben Isaacs (The Gaither Vocal Band, The Oak Ridge Boys) for the new recording, which showcases Randle’s deep, transparent vocals highlighted with soulful tones.
The 12-song release marks Randle’s first all-new recording in four years and includes congregational favorites “Just a Closer Walk with Thee,” “Nothing but the Blood” and “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus”; a new version of the popular ballad “People Need the Lord”; a re-make of the unforgettable pop hit “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life”; a crooning performance of the classic title cut; and a bluesy rendition of “Wayfaring Stranger.”
With three additional songs written or co-written by Randle, the release, recorded in Nashville, finds the singer, a household favorite on the Gaither HOMECOMING touring circuit, reconfirming an assured faith with gratefulness and hope.
“I was facing many challenges during my time of recording,” describes Randle, a resident of Kansas City, “and I feel as if God Himself just ‘swooped me up’ at times and placed me in front of a microphone and had the whole host of heaven sing for me!  I think Ben and I both knew that something supernatural was taking place; and for me, this release is a dream come true.”
In some ways, ‘Til the Storm Passes By feels more like a “reality come true” for Lynda, whose rich vocals resonate with the stirring emotion of a singer who has experienced firsthand the messages of her songs.
“My family and I have experienced so many spiritual and personal storms over the past two-and-a-half years,” she explains, “and God has held us close through every single one and brought us safely to the other side.  ‘Til the Storm Passes By’ is not just a line of an old song to me.  It’s a testament of God’s faithfulness in my life. He always keeps His promises.  Knowing the limitations of my own strength, all I can say is, ‘But God….’”
“When the label and Lynda approached me about producing this release, I immediately had a vision of where I wanted Lynda to go musically, and it was really fun to watch that play out in the studio,” recalls Isaacs.  “Lynda’s voice is multi-faceted.  This release captures the depth of her vocals, and there is a spaciousness about it that accentuates those vocals beautifully.”
‘Til the Storm Passes By, the newest release in the Gaither Gospel Series, will be distributed through EMI CMG Distribution and will be available through digital stores and at retail stores everywhere.  The release will be positioned heavily at retail, through catalog placement and through a direct tv campaign on networks including GAC, RFD, TBN, FamilyNet, CTS, CTN, TCT, TLN, FFE Airtime 1, Grace, Legacy, Miracle and Vision as well as on Gaither.com.
